How to use #AmazonCart to shop Amazon from Twitter #AmazonCart #cbias #shop

My family and friends know I love to shop online. Especially on Amazon. My UPS guy and mail carrier knows it, too. Believe me, they are delivering packages here several times a week. Every week.

I’m also a social media addict lover, with Twitter being at the top of the list. If you check out my Twitter profile you’ll see that I have tweeted out over 62,000 tweets. That’s a lot of tweets.

When I heard that Amazon and Twitter were teaming up with #AmazonCart, I was nothing short of ecstatic. Woot!

I think this new way of shopping online is revolutionary and I had to give it a try.

And let me tell you, it was so easy. EASY I tell ya. It took all of 10 minutes (if that long) once I saw a tweet from @Amazon about something I wanted.

Let me break it down for you…

Step One

How to shop at Amazon from Twitter #AmazonCart #cbias #shop

You can follow one or more of Amazon’s Twitter handles where they tweet out amazon links throughout the day of great finds on Amazon, oftentimes, at discounted prices.

When you see something in your Twitter stream with an Amazon link (it doesn’t have to be from an official Amazon handle, it can be from one of your Twitter friends) that you want, need, just can’t live without, just reply back with the hashtag #AmazonCart. It will be placed into your Amazon Cart right then from Twitter.

I saw where @Amazon had tweeted a great deal on a solar panel portable charger on the 9th, so I was afraid it might not still be available or at a great deal… but it was!

Step Two

You’ll receive an email immediately that the item has been added to you cart. Then go sign in to your Amazon Prime account.

Step Three

Go through the same steps you always go through when placing an order.

That’s it! I told you it was easy.

I placed my order yesterday morning and I got it today. Since I’m an Amazon Prime member I generally always get my orders within 48 hours.

I ordered the Solar Panel Portable Charger Backup External Battery Pack for my iPhone 5 because we spend a lot of time at the pool during the summer and I need a way to keep my phone charged. It will come in handy at the beach, this summer, too.

With #AmazonCart I can get in on some great deals. Plus discover some great finds from my friends. See if I tweet out an Amazon link, you, too, can buy it by replying to my tweet using #AmazonCart.

I encourage you to try it for yourself. Follow one or more of these Amazon Twitter handles to find some great deals:

  1. @amazon
  2. @amazonmp3
  3. @AmazonKindle
  4. @amazondeals
  5. @AmazonVideo
  6. @amazontechdeals
  7. @amazongames
  8. @AmazonFashion
  9. @amazon_movies
  10. @amazonappstore
  11. @amazonbooks
  12. @AmazonMusic
  13. @amazonwishlist
  14. @AmazonAppDev
  15. @AmazonToys

    I think this is so cool what they have done. I bought a hammock that I wouldn’t have noticed otherwise.

  2. Ida says:

    This is such a great idea from Amazon but a little dangerous to my wallet!!

  3. Heather says:

    Wow! I didn’t even know they made solar powered battery things for phones. So cool!! And Amazon is my number one online shopping place. This sounds like goodness all around.

    • Heather, I didn’t either. If I hadn’t seen the tweet, I don’t know when I would have discovered they did make solar powered chargers for phones/tablets/iPods! 🙂

  4. Greaaat… another way to fuel my Amazon addiction! 🙂

  5. Michele says:

    Wow- I can see how this would be extremely dangerous to my wallet which since I am semi retired is kind of on the skinny side. I doubt I will use it and I sincerely hope that those of you who do watch what you are spending in total carefully! This makes it almost too easy!

    • Honestly, Michele, I don’t think anyone would be more apt to shop on Twitter than they would straight from Amazon itself. It just makes it easier, plus if someone you know and trust tweets out an Amazon link of something they bought and loved, you know that it’s something you will probably like.
